Why is the UK one of the best places to see wildlife? I set up #WildOceanWeek to show people exactly why.
In the summer of 2019 I decided I wanted to make a dynamic and fresh new online series called #WildOceanWeek. WOW was an ambitious 7 day wildlife adventure like never seen before where I embarked on an epic wildlife encounter each day and bring the audience along with me - plugging up to 3 videos a day about the species and location. There was a variety of wildlife encounters including
Swimming with seals to nesting seabirds, breaching whales and diving with giant jellyfish
Each day of the week brought something different. To celebrate UK oceans Lizzie documented her ambitious circumnavigation of the UK to share wildlife encounters and inspire wider audiences with some of the most charismatic marine species found around the UK.
